    I agree. My experience thus far: I emailed 200 reporters and received no response. I am going to try the letters idea, because I too think what Amitjoey says is right-- letters make an impact.

    Write a letter, run a grammar/spell check, then print, SIGN, and send it to senators who support us. I wrote the following. But please personalize, because that would send the message that this is an issue of importance to you-- the writer.


    Senator Name, Address


    Subject: Thousands of properly filed EB Green Card applications likely to be rejected/ returned

    References/ Enclosures:
    � Interim Visa Bulletin by U S Department of State
    � USCIS announcement to stop accepting Adjustment Of Status applications

    Dear ____:

    I have been living in ___, USA for the last ___ months/ years. By profession, I am a ____, and I work for ___, a company based in ___.

    I am writing to bring to your attention the unprecedented decision made by US Department of State (DOS) on July 2, 2007 with its interim �visa bulletin�. With this bulletin, DOS determined that all the immigrant visa numbers allocated for the current financial year had been expended, and thus there would be no further authorizations of new Green Cards this year. In response, USCIS announced that it would return all Adjustment of Status applications it received, beginning July 2, 2007. Please note that the USCIS had already RECEIVED applications on the morning of July 2, 2007, even before DOS published this interim visa bulletin.

    In my opinion it is an unfortunate decision in that it virtually renders null and void, thousands of properly filed Employment Based Green Card- Adjustment of Status applications.

    An important thing to note here, is that in the Visa Bulletin published by DOS only 18 days ago (June 13, 2007) all Employment Based categories had been made �current� since almost 60000 immigrant visa numbers had been unused till that time.
    This begs the question: how did USCIS manage to approve about 60000 green cards in less than 3 weeks, when it took the previous 8 months to approve the same number of green cards?

    The Visa Bulletin published by DOS in June 2007, had brought good news to thousands of high-skilled temporary workers (doctors, engineers, IT professionals) in the USA, because the floodgates that had been closed for over 2 years had been re-opened.
    This bulletin had implied that we could finally apply for "Adjustment of Status"- the final stage of the 3 step Employment based Green card process. This would solve a number of quality of life issues for people like me, as they would allow our spouses to take up part or full time jobs, they would bring in an element of stability allowing me to plan the purchase of a new home, and it would give me the freedom of relocating to another part of the USA for any unforeseen reason, without worrying about the portability of my existing job.

    Therefore, my family and I worked really hard, and tried to religiously comply with all procedures laid out and submitted our application to reach the USCIS on the morning of July 2, 2007.

    Besides running around to gather the paperwork to help file in time, I had to spend a significant amount of money on:
    1) Urgent medical examinations and vaccinations by USCIS approved surgeon: $700. (Note: These were not covered by my medical insurance.)
    2) New passport photographs; these needed to be less than a month old... so these had to be newly taken photographs
    3) Notarization/ Courier charges: Approximately $100 (Some amount expended in foreign currency)

    All of the money spent, as well as the time and efforts were rendered useless by the new bulletin on July 2, 2007, which I repeat, was published AFTER the window opened for new applications on the morning of July 2, 2007.

    My point is, and I believe anyone with common sense would agree, it is only fair to expect a notice period before a reversal such as this one. Preferably... weeks of notice if not days! I am sure no US Citizen would accept anything less for a notice in such an important matter!

    I would implore you to look into this matter as soon as you can, and request the USCIS to accept Adjustment of Status applications filed through July 2007.

    Thank you.



    If you have not sent in a letter to your senator, please do it now. I think, this is going to work in our favour. Your senator is bound to take some action, inquiry into this mess.

    BTW is there really a law that disallows using unused visa number for a given fiscal year oafter the end of that fiscal year? If so where is it and how does it read like?

    Currently I am on H1B visa. My labor petition and I-140 were approved sometime last year. I have been on H1B for many years now and my current H1-B is valid till 2010. My wife is on a H1-B visa too. Her labor petition and I-140 were approved too last year.

    I have been admitted to some of the top ranking business schools full-time MBA program and intend to join one of those. I understand that transfer to F-1 status might be challenging. Hence I was planning to transfer to H4 status. School starts in Sept and I plan to be working till end of August. My question is : When do I need to file the I-539 change of status from H1 to H4 ? There is no date on the form I-539 that I can request my status change to be effective from. Also there is no guideline as to when my H4 status application may be approved. If I file now and it gets approved quickly, I cannot work for my employer and would have to sit at home. However, if I wait till end of August, then resign, how fast do I need to file for the H4 change of status ? Would the school have any issues if the approval is pending and I wanted to start classes. (Note I do have H1 valid till 2010, but once I quit my job I may no longer be in H1 status). Most schools did not have any accurate answer and hence I am throwing it at you gurus.

    Indians including me (I am still on h1b thanks to retrogression completed 9 yrs in the US ) have this chalta hai attitude

    and if it is not effecting me i dont care and dont want to know about it

    for US Masters/Degree holders

    they fall prey to the so called " DESI consulting companies " just as a last option and the moment they get a good offer they jump and also attending a US/Masters degree program for 2 yrs cant be a justification for "GOOD COMM SKILLS" I have seen MS guys talkin in vernac accent and I have no way of telling who is on h1b or a MS person "

    2) Remove the country limit
    3) Capture the unused Visa

    Thank you, Totoro for leading this effort. My suggestions are same as gc_dream07, but I would like to reword the suggestion
    2) Remove the country cap for employment based immigration (the argument we should put forward is that when it comes to employment based immigration the deciding criteria should be individual�s skills now where the individual was born).
    3) Capture the unused Visa (Green Cards)

    Thank you rb_!

    I knew ppl in this forum said the same thing as you said that GC is for a future job but unsure what my attorney will say.

    Other folks - any thoughts or insights?

    You can say it is a future job. But USCIS has to listen. They may refuse depending upon your employer's credibility. In either case, however, you have to move back to the state where LC was filed and stay permanantly there for a condiserable period of time upon approval of your GC. If they find you have not maintained residency in that state, they may revoke your GC. Who knows how the immigration law is going to get toughter in futre. Therfore just obey whatever your lawyer says. Do not rely on this immigration boards advise..

    There are still 28 more days to go :). Also the new Visa bulletin for October COULD stay the same or go back just a few months. So just keep your hopes up.:)

    It is very hard to pass 28 sleepless night....:):) Hard to make it thru even one...

    I have booked my tickets. I will fly in to DC by Saturday noon and fly out Monday evening. I got greened last year and I owe a lot to team IV and its members. I used to be very active on IV and always a good friend to Pappu, Aman, Jay and all other IV members.
    I have done lawmaker meetings twice in the past and would like to share my experiences with you all and also help with talking points etc... based on experience.

    I appeal all IV members to take advocacy seriously. Changes come only through persistent efforts and thats exactly what IV is doing. Most IV core team members already have green cards or are citizens and they don't need to do all this, but they are doing it because they believe that persistent, sincere, honest efforts would definitely reap benefits.

    Please contact your friends, relatives and co workers. Conduct local meetings, explain to them about IV and what it is doing. As IV members are well informed and understand the situation - especially EB3 folks, ignoring such events and not doing anything active is not an option.

    Why is the advocacy day so important? This is politics 101. One can be a great doctor, great engineer, great scientist and anything, but at the end of the day, we need to understand the dynamics of things and how things happens and do things accordingly. We are all great achievers primarily - we went to good schools, worked hard, got good jobs, able to migrate to the US and have excellent leadership qualities, we have good friends, nice families, great kids and cannot complain about life in general. But getting delayed on GC is very frustrating and if we do not understand what this is all about and what it takes to find a solution, then we are just missing that essential thing in life which is "what we would need to do to change things that helps us all". Reducing GC backlog and streamlining process is a win win situation to all and such message needs to be conveyed in an appropriate way. It is our issue and we need to take it up and not expect things will fall in place automatically.

    These days I see so many campaigns on facebook, twitter, etc... and the world is not like before. Public voice and opinions are being taken very seriously and if we do not live up to the times, then we basically lose big time.

    Do we want to lose it? I am sure we want to win.
    Can we all unite and help ourselves? I am sure we will.
    Can we all come forward? I am sure we will.

    Folks - we are all creative in different ways. Lets do what we can to further our cause. I wish a lot of people change their minds after reading my message.

    I will keep posting inspiring messages when I get a chance.

    Good luck to IV members.

    I think your calculation is wrong. If there are 8742 applications then it should take less than 3 years not 5 years. In the 2nd case for 14583 applications the wait would be around 5 years instead of 10-12 years. This is due to the fact that every year around 3000 visas go to EB3 category. Though this is a long wait too so either way we need legislative fix for all the cases.

    Have dependants been counted as part of the 8742 applicants - or are they just primary applicants?

    This is true. I heared the same from my attorney too. If you look at the history, there are two times they have discontinued the VB in the middle of the month. So let us hope the best and we will prepare for the worst.

    I am not sure how far it is true, but this is the content of the email I got from my attorney when I pressed him to file at the earlierst.

    "As soon as we have these forms back, all of the evidence for filing remaining from you, and I review the completed filing, we will file it. We appreciate your interest in filing on the first day the filing allows. We will endeavor to do that. I should point out that the current bulletin allows for filings throughout July. It is possible that the filings could be discontinued later in July. We are in touch with officials in Washington about this issue and will file your application in a timely fashion for obtaining the benefit when the filing is properly prepared."
